Dedicated to long-time Hope volunteer and visionary of Joanne’s House, Donna Roberts, the cookbook combines family recipes with inspirational scriptures.
“We chose scriptures with the word hope, as well as plants or flowers mentioned in the Bible that are often edible, such as the mustard seed or grapes,” said Dee McClay, one of the 100 women who were part of the cookbook effort.
This second-edition cookbook features 30 additional pages of ideas and hundreds of kitchen-tested recipes ranging from appetizers, salads, all types of meat, desserts, breads and breakfasts.
“We even tried to incorporate gluten-free recipes,” McClay said. “The first edition, ‘Let the Butter Fly,’ was published several years ago and was quite successful,”
Hope Hospice Houses, located throughout Lee County, provide quality care while offering patients a homelike environment to make their hospice experience comforting.
